The festival will feature two stages showcasing local musical talent including Seventies disco band Jeliphish, cover bands The Oakies and Footloose and Bella Rima, a nine-piece vocal group. Music will be played from 10am to 10pm on Saturday and from noon to 6pm on Sunday.
As well as the music stages the festival will also offer stalls, sideshows and activities for the thousands of expected visitors, including "It's a knockout" tournaments, truck pulls, climbing walls, bouncy castles, and cookery demonstrations. On the lake itself there will also be sailing, canoeing, radio- controlled model boat races, Zorbing and novelty bath tub races.
MARLENS festival music director Mike Britton said: "This is the eighth annual MARLENS festival and we want to make it the biggest yet. It's not only a great day out but is also vital for us to keep running the marine lake. It opened in 1929 as a major leisure facility for Clevedon and is still in regular use. It requires constant upkeep and improvements to keep it in service for the people of Clevedon and North Somerset. A permanent repair to the outer wall of the marine lake is one of the top priorities for the future."
